Exhibition of “Chinese Opera ” Series

Chinese Opera once was Chinese popular art, but nowadays Chinese pop culture has quickly emulated the advanced world culture (of the west) with a high speed Chinese modernization and the globalization of world economy and culture. Chinese opera—the formerly prevalent popular art however has become classic art or alternative art which had triggered us to ponder over it.
Relaxing, fashionable, innovative and leisured are four important features of pop culture in modern society. Under the premise of keeping the special stylized forms of Chinese Opera, Artist added some popular elements in their work, trying to smash the shackle of “Classic” and deconstruct the old patterns in order to present it in an easy look of popular art.
